the uk's high divorce rate rather than promoting marriage. the coalition for equal marriage is love is love regardless of gender. well, i would add that love is love regardless of marital status. and while the majority of us, almost all of us absolutely believe in marriage for all his rate and yes, compared to some countries can bush legalize same-sex marriage some years ago, i note that the u.k. has been slow to act. if things are rapidly changing. the huge success of civil partnerships recognized commitment to same-sex couples has been a capitalist for this change. david cameron has pledged to legalize same-sex civil marriages by 2015. abdallah before marriage will be introduced here in this chamber in a 10 minute speech. i accept this as a plot to talk about such an important issue, but it's longer than i've got. i'm at the parliament or a cynical access marriage, there is a danger that any campaign will be overtaken by the legal change we seek. i conclude we have three main priorities. quality, quality, the national campaign will not provide the equality we required. more import

between us is we won the large multinational companies to pay proper taxes here in the u.k.. we believe you do that by having lower tax rate and we reduce the rate of corporation tax but by making sure they declare their income properly. that is why on this specific issue of transfer, companies have been pursuing strange practices to pretend there revenues aren't delivered in the u.k. and run down their tax bills. .. >> the entry of the energy bill to parliament now means we can get out there and sell to all of the energy companies the very clear and stable framework that the u.k. has for offshore wind, for nuclear, for renewables and, indeed, for gas. i think it's a very positive development, there's a huge amount of potential, pent-up investment, and we need to make sure that results in british jobs and apprenticeships, and the government is fully committed to making that happen. >> [inaudible] pruitt. >> the prime minister obviously believes within the leveson report, there exists something that is bonkers. how would the prime minister give the views of his planning minister
in the history of the u.k. with all the prime minister's she has worked with how has that impacted her as a queen from your knowledge? >>guest: she has a vast store of information. she does not have the ideological filter. she takes things and and why she is so valuable to the people who come to her for confidentiality. prime ministers meet with her for one hour every week but others, she has the wisdom as well as a body of knowledge and an extraordinary memory for things. when public officials come to her to ask for guidance, they always remark, even if they are skeptical with a private audience, and nobody else is in the room to record which gives them freedom to say what is on their mind. harold wilson, a labor prime minister in the '70s is hard to say but she had an affectionate relationship with him. the private secretary said he considered her to be a very astute diplomat of the political scene. she can size people up and understand the new ones of a political situation. these things have given her a valuable role. not just a figurehead but a range of duties that people don't fully apprecia
favorite example, which i went back and looked at it kind of horrified me. uk's might remember this widely reported. in january 2007, think about that date january 2007, mike bloomberg and chuck schumer, commissioned a report from mckenzie when new york was falling behind compared to london. to be the support you can google it in 30 seconds. it's shocking the main problem, the single biggest thing holding back the u.s. economy is overly harsh regulation of credit derivatives. it's in this report you will start a section on credit derivatives, how we need less regulation of them otherwise london will take over global finance. what was amazing at the time is everybody agreed that this report. eliot spitzer was quoted saying how great this was. chuck schumer was one of the sponsors in the u.k. labor was running the u.k. and even the critics said this report showed that even the labor is kind of spending far too much money on the nhs at least they give regulation right. so there was a very widespread bipartisan kind of economic faculties of the western world bought into this and that played a

didn't think that was the way to solve the crisis. when you look at the so-called -- in the uk and now a new report by the european commission to, they propose something that smells like glass-steagall. with a difference. they say let's separate all those activities, use the same language about proprietary activity and trading and all the rest, and they say but let's keep it in same holding company. but we will separate the banking subsidiaries from the investment banking subsidiary, and will put all the trading, more than i would, in this subsidiary, or all these underwriting, although lending come all the prime growth, lending to hedge funds and property funds. let's see cluster them in a separate subsidiary and will have this other security that is for commercial banks. now when i see this i wonder why didn't they take the final step and say no, that's going to be a separate company. because it's very hard -- and say that they are not related and independent. they immediately run into problems. may run into problems. what transaction will exist between the investment bank and retail
are in place in scandinavia and in germany and the u.k. and reshaped those market forces, and the way we shape those market forces has been the result of the least equality of opportunity contrary to our image of our self. it's really a myth. the countries that have imitated the united states have done like the united states. the u.k. used to be in the middle of the elite table and now we are expecting of the income inequality whereas it struggled and inequality has increased a little bit but it is still the least -- the most the quality of opportunity. .. even canada is, less harsh society than ours and the same environment we are, speak the same language, these are choices and choices about how we run markets. the distribution of marketing, there is a lot you can do, it is choice about what you do after words as well, providing universal health coverage or provide decent support or an educational system that is well funded for everybody, not just people in the right neighborhoods. >> and the tax system is obviously important, not only for inequality opportunity, but also growth. so for insta

, unemployment is 2.4% lower than the uk's. growth is 2.5% and -- [inaudible] will the prime minister be gracious enough to congratulate iceland for working hard and turning things around and maybe he can learn from iceland? >> i think if the case for an independent scotland is make us more like iceland, i'm not sure that will totally recommend itself to the voters. written and iceland have very good relations, and i will make sure that remains to be the ca case. >> could not also welcome the fall and the youth and unemployment were youth unemployed has fallen steadily for the past nine months. and is the lowest since may 2010. but i urge the prime minister took in 10 youth this conference investment into youth contract? >> i'm grateful for the honorable lady's point. we will continue not just for the apprenticeships which reach over 1 million under this government but also the youth contract and particularly work experience because what we are seeing is a large number so people who go into work experience come off benefits, find a job and find it a very good start to a career and a working group
